I read about the Lucky Sleeping Pig years ago
and I was intrigued.
When pigs were first domesticated in China,
to own one was a sign of prosperity and good fortune.
In fact, the Chinese symbol for for
“Home Sweet Home”
is the combination of the symbol for pig
with thee symbol for roof over it.
Today, in China,
many people keep a sleeping porcelain pig in their home
to bring fortune and happiness.
My sleeping pig isn’t porcelain,
but he is sweet.
You remember when I first sculpted him
from air-dry clay
I painted him
and glazed him
Now all the poor guy needs is a pillow.
I am using him for this weeks theme at IA
Stephanie chose the theme and said she always thinks of flowers
when she thinks of spring…me too!
Now I am off to sew him his pillow…
I am not a sewer, so this is a labor of love.
Oh. some of you asked what kind of clay I used.
It’s brand name is PRANG.
I can’t endorse it or not
as this was the first time I used air-dry clay.
If you have time Sunday afternoon,
will be showcasing all the other contributors.
There is always some inspiring work :)
